Cinema review: Africa United (12A)

This feel good fictional tale follows Rwandan football prodigy Fabrice, who is determined to audition for the South African World Cup opening ceremony. But on his way, he manages to get lost and ends up in Congo, where he’s taken to a children’s refugee camp. Fabrice, along with his best friend Dudu and some new found friends, head straight to Johannesburg for the ceremony itself, travelling 3,000 miles through seven countries. Shot entirely on location in Rwanda, Burundi and South Africa, watch this if you were a fan of Slumdog Millionaire.

(Three stars)
